Description 

As of 2012, this is the reason for climbers to come here. With its >1 hr. approach, don't expect crowds. If you arrive in the autumn, you won't be alone, however: a stone's throw from the cliffs lies private property, all of it hunting clubs, whose members gleefully ply the woods below for game. Bright colors are strongly recommended during hunting season.
Though short, the cliff boasts a lot of excellent climbing, most of it both pumpy and technical. Solid leading at mid- to hard 5.10 level is the sweet spot, although most of these routes can be TR'd with the help of a long static line or extra rope.

Getting There 

Follow the herd path described for West Mtn. Ridge all the way to this southernmost cliff.

Definitely very hard for short people.Climb the bulging face on good horizontals to a short slabby section below another bulging headwall. Break this via a seam rippling upward to a break in a left-facing corner at an overhang. The seam offers little for purchase unless you can reach realll high to a one-finger slot.Gear through the overhang is extremely pumpy, but once past that obstacle, the going gets easier....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
